Saquon Barkley is probably not going to play on Thursday and could miss some time this season after suffering a worrying injury on Sunday.

During the Giants-Cardinals game, Barkley went down in the fourth quarter with a lower leg injury.

A frustrated Barkley slammed his helmet against the floor and would be seen walking with a limp on the sidelines.

According to former NFL doc and orthopedic surgeon David Chao, Barkley will likely miss Thursday’s game and could miss more games with a high ankle injury.
